February 16-18, 2018 T97 Ski Trip:We will leave on Friday, Feb. 16th and drive to a hotel in Madison, WI.

On Saturday morning, we will head up to Cascade Mountain for a day of skiing and tubing (if desired).
We will return to Madison on Saturday evening for dinner.
On Sunday, we will head back up to the mountain for another day of skiing with a departure from Cascade in the mid-afternoon and an evening arrival back in Chatham.

Cost: The approximate cost for this trip is $275 plus money for dinners on the road and lunches at the mountain. This is based on at least 15 people going. Once the final numbers are known as of the January 29th meeting, the final costs will be given out. There are group discounts as well as discounts for scouts that are 11 or 12. This will affect the final cost. However, as long as we have 15, it should not be more than $275 plus meals the scouts are responsible for. The break out of the costs are as follows:
Ski Lift Tickets (2 days) $94
Add Tubing $10
Ski Rental (2 days) $80
Lodging $66
Gas and Food $25
February 25, 2017: First Aid Meet: Troop 97 scouts will join other Troops for the annual First Aid Meet. Plan to join this and practice your first aid skills in realistic simulations. Start time and cost is yet to be determined
